Short tail

Came across this vole, struggling to decide on the ID. Think it's a Field Vole because of the short tail but not totally sure, any help much appreciated. Cheers in advance,

Field vole

This animal is quite red for a field vole, but the tail is 'naturally' short (not bitten off) and the fur is quite long, so I'd agree with field vole.
